'This was followed by a discussion of
various phases of the spiritual depart
ment, at 9:15 o'clock. Bible study
classen were discussed in this connec
tion by Mrs. Boomer, of the Spencer
Memorial church. She has been very
active in this line of work at the Spen
cer church, and her suggestions were
made as the result of considerable ex
perience in this work. Personal work
and fellow-workers' covenant, an im
portant factor in the spiritual depart
luent, was discussed by Rev. D. S. An
drewartha, of Moline. He emphasized
the importance and the benefits of this
part of the activity of the league, and
urged its extension in the district.
Mamie Dodge Cooke, the flock Island
deaconess, discussed direct evangelistic
effort in regular devotional meetings.
Mrs. Barney D. Ball, of Cambridge,
who was to have talked on the possi
bilities of the Mercy and Help de
liartincut. was unable to be present,
and this subject was well presented by
Miss Peterson, of Cambridge. Her re
marks were followed by an open con
ference on the subject. "What Has
Your league Done in This Depart
luent?" This was of great interest to
the delegates in attendance, revealing
many Interesting conditions in the vaii
ous leagues of the district.

Under the subject "Our Confercnc
Institutions." J. It. Mercer, of Brim
field, and President H. B. dough, ol
Iledding college, Abingdon. mad
dtort addresses. "The Conference
Hospital" was tbe subject of tbe ad
dress by Mr. Mercer, who took th
place of Rav. A. M. Stoc king of Peoria
who was uuable to be preseut. Mr.
Mercer gave many interesting figures
concerning the hospital, and empha
Fixed its importance in the church
President II B. dough, representing
lieddiug college, a school conducted by
I he conference of the church, urged
that the young man or woman secure
a college education, but deprecated th.
big institutions. He )uoted eminent
authorities who hold that the ideal
college is that where there are 300
students, and faculty distinctly chris
tian and in close touch with the stud
nts in their every day life. He point
ed out that lieddiug college answers
these upeciflcatious. "lu choosing your
college, remember that the fioiiiual
life lueaus far more to you than does
the securing of a college education."
said President Gough. "No one of
good health, who has a real determina
tion to secure an educatiou. need deny
himself the college course." said Mr.
Cough in closiug.
The discussion of the literary and
eocial departments of league work and
its essentials was couducted by Mi'
Gibbs, of Ualva. She contradicted the
statement that Methodism is not fav
orable to intellectual and social cul
ture, and ponted out that the fact that
the Methodist church has more high
Institutions of learning than any oth
I '. A . . I 1
er church shows the -opposite to be
true. Miss Gibbs urged the installa
tion of an exchange table in connection
with league work, and also the more
general circulation of church papers
and the prescribed reading for
Rev. D. S. Bartle. of the Upper Iowa
conference made a short talk on tbe
possibilities of the International Ep
worth Lea rue convention at Denver
July 5 to 9. and urged a large repre
sentation at the sessions.
The remainder of the morning's ses
sion waa devoted to the junior league
department, interesting papers being
read n the subject by Miss Daisy
Wood. Miss Ella Taylor. Mrs. Swengle.
Miss Wood took up the value of the
junior department to the church, and
pointed out the influence of the de
partment over the young people. Miss
Ella Taylor's subject was "How to
make the junior wheel go." She urged
the best possible organization for the
junior department, and pointed out the
importance of selecting the best per
son possible for the office of superin
tendent. She held that good training
for the young- people in the league is
"make all you can. save all you can.
and give all you can."
One of the features of the discussion
of junior league work was the discus
sion of the program, by Mrs. H. M.
Swengle. She illustrated by haviug
part of the junior department members
of Spencer Memorial church give cer
tain portions of the regular Sunday af
"Behold Your King." was the text
from which Rev. L. C. Lemon, of St.
John's Methodist Episcopal church of
Davenport preached in delivering the
opening sermon of the Rock Island
district Epworth League convention at
Spencer Memorial church last even
ing. "It may have been that Pilate had
some revelation and was touched by
Christ's personality when he uttered
those words before the crucifixion, but
it is more than likely that he made the
statement because it was a revenge on
the Jews, who had constantly denied
the authority of Pilate and of Caesar,
and had given great difficulty to the
government. If this was so it was the
last day of Rome's triumph," said' the
speaker, "for Rome never again could
use such irony in speaking of Chris
tian power." Dr. Lemon contrasted
the time of Pilate with today, when
Christ is recognized as king by hun
dreds of thousands.
The speaker then discussed the at
tributes of Christ that gave him the
right to the title of king. In all gov
eminent there should be three depart
ments, and are three departments, and
he showed from incidents in Biblical
history that Christ had legislative, ju
dicial and executive power. To show
that he had legislative power the
speaker cited the cases where Christ
contradicted the law of Moses, the
then recognized teaching, and madje
his own rulings. The principles, he
said are now recognized universally in
civilized countries, and his admonition
to "Ive thy God with all thy heart,
and thy neighbor as thyself" is the
foundation of every civilized govern
meat's laws. In this connection Dr.
Lemon drew a picture of his concep
tion of heaven. His idea is that there
will be no gates closing it in. but that
ihe ones who are entitled to enter will
naturally gravitate there, while the
others will slink away iu awful fear of
the august presence of Christ.
He spake of Christ's rulings when
prisoners had been convicted and con
leujiied to death according to the Ko
man laws and tbe laws of Moses, and
spoke of various instances where he
had been appealed to, and had unhesi
tatingly used his own judgment in op
positron to the rulings of the law, as
illustrating Christ's judicial power.
As proof of his executive powers he
cited his miracles, and his fearlessness
of sickness or even death and his mas
tery over both. He concluded his ad
Iress with an earnest appeal for en
thusiastic christian work on he part
f Epworth leaguers, and pointed out
the great results that might be at
iained from the district convention it
die delegates enter into it with the
right spirit and determination.
From 7 to S o'clock last evening an
informal reception was held for dele
gates in the Sunday school room of the
church. The delegates all wear card
badges bearing their names and ad
dresses, and in this way all the visitors
become quickly acquainted. The reg
istration last evening showed 175 dele
gates in attendance, and the church
wus filled when tie song service was

WATER DOING SOME DAMAGE
Tracks in Lower End of City Are Now
Submerged Flowing Freely into
Fuel Company's Yard.
The rapid rise of the Mississippi
since the last rains has attracted con
siderable attention, and. in fact has
been the source of some fear of loss of
property, which is warranted. The re
port shows that at 6 o'clock this morn
ing the stage was 13.85. and at noon it
was 14.20. thus indicating" a rise of
over 4 inches in six hours. The report
from the north indicates that the fall
will not commence until Thursday
night, being stationary most of that
Sour DamiKf Doir.
Although the highest stage has not
yet been reached there has been some
damage done in the lower end of the
city and a considerable amount of in
convenience which was investigated
by The Argus today. The water is
finding its way up under the lumber
piles at the saw mill, and is consider
ably over the fence along the right ot
way of the Peoria railway opposite the
Republic Oil company's buildings.
The spurs and sidings that run to
the oil cloth works are under water
in all of the lower places, and wood is
drifting away from tbe yards of the
Rock Island Fuel company.1 At noon
today the water was rapidly running
into all the low places iu the yards ot
this company. Most of. this water is
backing up from Rock river into the
slough, and the depth now is about
twice what it is normally.
Walrruirlou Crop la Danger.
The river is rising rapidly at Musca
tine. Thousands of acres across the
river are inundated, farmers there are
driving the stock to the hills to save
them from drowning. The first flood
victim was claimed yesterday after
noon, when a rour-year-oid child ot
William Holmes was drowned by fall
ing in the river from an undermined
bank. The body was soon recovered.
The levee above the city broke yes
terday inundating hundreds of acres
of land planted with garden truck. The
loss is variously estimated at $S,000 to
$10,000. The enormous farms belong
ing to the Heinz Pickle works are in
danger. The island levee below the
city is in danger and being constantly
If the water goes a foot higher it
will break over this levee and will in
undate the island eight miles long and
four miles wide, ruining the great mel

MRS. TINA ROYER
Woman Disappeared From Working
Place Saturday and Did Not
Go to Room.
Friends of Mrs. Tina Rover are in
quiring as to her whereabouts, as she
has not been seen in the city since Sat
urday. She had been employed at the
Godfrey restaurant on Market square
for some time, and on Saturday she
left there. The supposition at the res
taurant was that she had. gone to her
room on Third aveune in the vicinity
of Fifth street. When she did not re.
turn to the restaurant, inquiry was
made at the place where she was room
ing, as it was feared that she was ill,
but no one knew of her coming there at
all. She has relatives south of the
city, and it may be that she has gone
there, as it was known that she was
not feeling well, but no information to
this effect has been received in town.
